I was reading a book on the family 37 years ago which stated that large families are for socialism, even communism. The book further stated that they are more likely to be authoritarian. Yes, large families are against ownership, see it as selfish.
Large families can be authoritarian because it's easier. It's more difficult for parents of eight children to control their offspring than for parents of two. My biggest question for large families is this: Can you take good care your children?
Levi, parents DON'T raise their large brood. They enforce that task upon their OLDEST/OLDER children. OLDEST/OLDER children in large families are THE REAL parents. I have written hubs on the subject of large families.
True in a lot of cases, I'm sure. But generalizations are usually not helpful.
This ISN'T generalization at all. Parents of large families DON'T raise their children, they MAKE their OLDEST/OLDER children raise them. That is a normative large family lifestyle. That is where parentified kids come from.
